's second largest city of cleveland. the study found that african-americans used early in person voting at 26 times the rate of white voters in 2008. the study used census tracks where the voting population is over 80% african-american. every one of those red dots on the map represent 50 early voters. ohio republicans were trying to end early voting 72 hours prior to election day except for members of the armed forces. luckily for all ohio voters, their efforts have failed. on friday a federal appeals court judge upheld a lower courts decision striking down the law. the three-judge panel ruled the 72-hour voting period should be open to all voters in the state, including members of the military. this is good news. some questions still remain. it's being report the the final decision could be up to individual ohio counties meaning 72-hour window we're talking about could still end in certain places in the state. ohio republicans can still file another appeal sending it to the supreme court. as of now, there's no word of that appeal. it is big. president obama needs ohio to win the electi

been profitable. it didn't matter how well they performed. they were done. it was over. so the city of about 25,000 people is closing what is really considered in this town a major employer. bain is killing 170 jobs. you might think, well, that's not that many, ed. in a town like this, it's huge. the americans, you know what they did? these workers? they had to change the chinese replacements. the equipment, where is it? it's on its way to china. now, the employees have been protesting for months. the freeport city council sent a formal request, a formal request to mitt romney asking for help. they got no response. and it's no wonder, bain capital has a lot to gain in this deal. sensata leaves freeport with record profits after a boost from the automobile loan thanks to barack obama. their moving costs, you know what they are? they're tax deductible. the united states claims china also gives massive incentives to companies for moving overseas. it's totally illegal. now, according to "the new york times," mitt romney is personally turning a profit. he reportedly donated at least $405
here in new york city. every four years both presidential candidates typically attend the event. president obama and mitt romney will both speak tonight. and it should be an opportunity for both of them to have a good laugh. everybody can use that. candidates normally take a lighthearted tone at this dinner poking fun at themselves and their opponents. here's some of what happened back in 2008. >> began so long ago with a heralded arrival, a man known to oprah winfrey as the one. being a friend and colleague of barack, i just called him that one. he even has a pet name for me. george bush. >> it is an honor to be here with al smith. i obviously never knew your great-grandfather, but from everything that senator mccain has told me, the two of them had a great time together before prohibition. so. there was a point in my life when i started palling around with a pretty ugly crowd. i've got to be honest. these guys were serious deadbeats. they were low lives. they were unrepentant. no good punks. that's right. i've been a member of the united states senate. come to think of it, joh

allowed them to go up in the first place, but the fact we stood up and fought here in the city of cleveland and across ohio, it says a lot. the fact that all the billboards are coming down, about 150 of them across the country, is a big deal. the folks who put up the billboards were cowards to target minority communities. but we're not going to let that stop us from getting out the vote. >> what with you hearing? were they having an effect? was there conversation and confusion about voter fraud? >> people were very concerned. as you can imagine, in some of the communities, there are ex-offenders that live in those communities. but in ohio, if you are an ex-offender and you're registered to vote, you can vote. so the fact they would put a message out like that is deplorable. it makes no sense. they are out to get folks that don't exist. voter fraud is nearly nonexistent and they know it. but they will do any rotten thing to try to suppress the vote. especially among those most likely to vote for obama. and everyone in this country should be upset that anybody would do that and t
to freeport themselves on tuesday and made the threat to the mayor of the city. they didn't have the guts to tell the workers to their face. when workers were informed of the threat, they immediately filed charges against sensata with the national labor relations board. the filing accuses the company of illegally punishing employees engaged in legal protests. the threats from bain capital have only strengthened the workers. bainport is still up and running at this hour. and earlier today, 14 protesters including the reverend jesse jackson were arrested at the sensata factory for demanding just to meet with management. it's important to remember, mitt romney's role in all of this. and what would happen if the country is directed by this man, mitt romney. mitt romney created bain capital and the model it uses today. he believes in outsourcing and he's done nothing to help the workers of freeport. romney also has $8 million worth of bain funds, so when bain profits off of outsourcing, so does mitt romney. meanwhile, sensata has released their third quarter financial statement. not the second
